Great environment and meal. If you like the outdoors then this is the place. A short drive outside of JHB north in the bush but worth it. If outdoor entertainment then it is a must

Had a lovely Sunday lunch at al Fiume. Louise Carver was playing which added to the lovely surroundings. It is really very beautiful sitting right on the river and a true hidden gem, in that sense. If found the food somewhat overpriced for very 'average' food.
The setting is gorgeous, but the quality of the food needs to be improved... (It wasn't BAD, but could be BETTER.)

I was there with some colleagues on a breakaway. Excellent venue in a picturesque area. The restaurant is on the Hennops River and it is absolutely tranquil and relaxing. Food was excellent together with the attention you receive from staff. Really exceptional!! Will definitely be returning with my family.

They didn't have enough wine lists, we had to wait for one to become available. They didn't have enough menus either. The service was really bad, wrong orders etc. The food was mediocre. The only positive was the surroundings but that can only help so much...

Went for Xmas Day, seating is nice, the band playing well (forget about the useless speakers), fully booked. Starters came after 5 minutes, mains after 1,5 hours. Then the bees also come. You had the choice moving your cutlery around 5-9 bees on your plate or being exposed to an awful smoking device being placed on the table in front of you. Did not matter eventually as food was inedible. The usual Christmas suspects, turkey, salmon, etc, big portions, canteen style, thrown on small plates - neither nice for the eyes nor for the palate. Skipped the dessert to avoid any more disappointments - and bees - and went straight to the completely overpriced bill. What a rip off!
PS
The wine list is a joke as well.
